On Tuesday, November 3rd, California's nearly 40 million residents had the opportunity to participate in the 2020 General Election. For the benefit of our members, League staff has compiled a list of newly elected freshman legislators, election results, and reasons for not seeking re-election. Below are the results of notable elections. The election results depicted below do not include legislators who won their re-election campaign.
Recognizing that results are still coming in, the League offers a brief recap of some of the 2018 midterm election results and what it will likely mean for our sector. With strong majorities in the California Legislature, we anticipate Governor-elect Gavin Newsom to pursue several of his signature education initiatives that he refers to as “cradle-to-career.”
